Virtus Safe Environment!

To all of our wonderful SJN Volunteers:

Child sexual abuse is a worldwide public issue.  Child abuse, particularly child sexual abuse, is reprehensible – especially when the wrongdoer is affiliated with the church.  Protecting God’s Children Workshop (VIRTUS) program assists the church in being a safe haven for children and a messenger for preventing child sexual abuse within the church and society in general.  The Diocese of Charlotte’s new policy is that all volunteers must complete a background check as well as attend a Protecting God’s Children (VIRTUS) workshop.

Thank you, to all who have already completed a background check and have attended a 

Protecting God’s Children Workshop (VIRTUS).To complete a background check or register for a workshop please go to and follow the easy instructions.

If you are unsure whether you have completed either the background check or workshop, please contact Carolyn at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or contact the parish office.
